how to connect our technology, people and ideas and figure out how to cooperate and most importantly make a commitment to prevent these deaths from happening. 10 years ago there was a young woman named lenora alexander, she was a healthy 11-year-old irl and she underwent elective surgery to correct something at a prestigious hospital. the awoke at 2:00 a.m., victim of respiratory arrest, caused by a drug that was intended to ease her pain. but if she had been monitored continuously after the surgery, hospital staff and lenora may have been alerted and leah would probably have been rescued. but there are other sort of preventable deaths that deals with washing hands, transferring of infections when hands aren't washed properly. monitoring has already picked up by lenora's tragic situation. her situation is not unique, unfortunately. a summit came together to figure out what can we do to solve the problem going back to the coordination, cooperation that i spoke about earlier. the fact is at this patient safety, technology and science summit, people, trained professionals came togethe
. the pace of technology change and spread of advanced military technology to state and nonstate actors pose an encreasing challenge to america's military. this is the environment that is facing the department of defense as it enters a third year of flat or declining budgets. the onset of these constraints has led to belt tightening in military modernization, force structure, personnel costs and overhead expenditures. it has given us the opportunity to reshape the military and reform defense institutions to better reflect 21st century realities. the process began under the leadership of secretary gates. secretary gates curtailed more than 30 modernization programs and trimmed overhead costs within the military services and across the defense enterprise. the realignment continued secretary panetta who crafted new strategic guidance in an f.y. 2013 defense budget plan which reduced the department's top line by $487 billion over the course of a decade. the president's request of $526.6 billion for fy 2014 continues to implement the president's defense strategic guidance and enhances the departm

and can only respond to known threats. cyberthreats evolve at the speefed technology and this measure helps the private sector protect against cyberattacks by providing companies with the latest cyberthreat information from the intelligence community which has timely classified information about destructive malware. this cyberthreat intelligence is the information that companies and the government need to protect and defend their networks. the so-called signatures are primarily made up of numerical codes consisting of zeros and ones without any perm information attached. -- any personal information atammed. cispa is a result of cooperation between the community, companies and to a certain degree the white house as it pertains to many measures included in this legislation. during their efforts to improve the bill, they also maintain a dialogue with privacy advocates in an effort to strengthen civil liberties, protections and oversights. i had a personal note here for the reason that over a period of 10 years i served eight of those years on the intelligence committee. and the now chair
-skilled immigration area. at microsoft and across the technology sector, we are increasingly grappling with a significant challenge. we are not able to fill all the jobs we are creating. the numbers help to share the story. at a te when unemployment hovers just below 8% unemployment rate in computer and mathematical operation has fallen to 3.2%, and in many states in many subcategories it has fallen below 2%. unfortunately the situation is likely to get worse, better -- rather than better. it is estimated that this year the economy will create over 120,000 jobs. in this will require a bachelor degree in computer science. all of the countries together will produce only 51,474 of these degrees. that is why high-skilled immigration and this legislation is of such great importance. the bill you are considering does three very important things. first, it addresses trd shortag. it eliminates or goes very far to reduce the backlog. it eliminates the per country cap and a crew to create a green card category for advanced cream degrees. all things that are needed. second, the bill quite rightly

of the issues we have looked at and there are ways technology-wise to do checks. this legislation does not move in that direction. it is the opposite, prohibiting a national registry so that information about themselves are not made public and not controlled by government. they are controlled by the person who sells the gun, so therefore there is no record of gun ownership and that is specifically admitted under current law and the bills we are taking up today. the suggestion you are making is one we have had in the past. i do not think there is the legislative support to move that type of proposal, but i agree with you that it is worthy to take a look at. look at both sides had right now there is a missed trust of what government will do with that information. those answers need to be -- questions need to be answered. host: from twitter, the fact that it will not stop all people from getting guns is a weak excuse. let me put another issue on the table. you serve on the foreign affairs committee and this is the headline in the international section of "the new york times." government will do wi
